National Institute of Technical Teachers

Training & Research, Chandigarh
(Rules & Procedures)
1. Introduction
In realization of the need for training better quality technicians to meet the large scale
industrialization of the country, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (the then Ministry
of Education), Government of India, on the recommendations of All India Council for Technical
Education (AICTE), established four Regional Technical Teachers Training Institutes (now
National Institute of Technical Teachers Training & Research, (NITTTR) at Bhopal, Chandigarh,
Chennai and Kolkata in 1967. The Institute at Chandigarh, started in collaboration with Royal
Netherlands Government (upto 1974), was designed to meet the requirements of developing
polytechnic education in the northern region covering the states of Jammu and Kashmir,
Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Delhi and Union
Territory of Chandigarh. The institute during the last forty years acted as a resource system to
technical education and provided guidance at national, state and institution levels in policy
formulation, planning and management, quality controls etc. The Institute is registered under the
Societies Registration Act, 1860 and is managed by a Board of Governors.
To achieve its stated objectives, the institute undertakes the following spectrum of activities:
Education and Training Programmes; Curriculum Development; Instructional Material
Development; Research and Development; Extension Services; Consultancy in Technical
Education and Technology areas. Keeping in tune with the various emerging needs of the
country, the institute presently extends its services in the following areas as well: Media
Development including information resources, their acquisition, storage and retrieval;
Entrepreneurship Development; Industry Institute Interaction; Continuing Education for working
engineers/technicians; Rural development; Transfer of Appropriate Technology to rural areas;
Integrating Persons with disabilities with the mainstream of Technical and Vocational Education.
Since 1992, the institute started offering Regular Master of Engineering Programmes in (i)
Engineering Education and (ii) Manufacturing Technology. In the year 1994, two more
courses namely Master of Engineering in Construction Technology and Management and
Computer Science and Engineering were added. In the year 1998, two more Master of
Engineering Programmes in Instrumentation and Control and Electronics and
Communication Engineering were added, and, since 2005, the institute started offering
Master of Engineering Programmes on Modular mode in all the above disciplines. All these
programmes, being offered for teachers of technical institutions and their administrators,
professionals from industry, are duly approved by AICTE and affiliated to PU, Chandigarh.
Since June 2001, Engineering Colleges in the northern region have been brought under the
purview of this institute as per the directions of MHRD. Since 2001 this institute has been
conducting many short term courses in various subjects for Engineering College teachers in

addition to catering to their other needs. The institute is organizing large number of short term
courses for faculty of Engineering Colleges every year. In addition, the institute is also
organizing induction training programmes and content based short term courses through ICT.
The status of the institute was elevated to a National Institute and renamed as National
